Soil & Water

Successful irrigation demands that not only the right crop be selected, but that soil and water conditions also be considered.

Soils & Fertility

Fertilizer and nutrient requirements are critical because irrigation can leach some needed nutrients and add other nutrients creating an imbalance to a field. Resources are available on the Soils & Fertility page.


Irrigating crops requires consideration of several water management issues. See our Water page for tips on irrigation management, drainage issues, and infrastructure.
